What happens when authors combine espionage themes with science fiction? Our panel discusses the ins and out of science fictional spy thrillers. What kinds of seemingly innocuous objects become super high tech spy gear? How do characters become embroiled in a world of adventure and espionage in far flung settings or in the cyberpunk near future? And what makes a spy story satisfying as a science fiction crossover when the opposing force may be something as realistic as a foreign government or as fanciful as a diabolical mastermind?
